My Kid's First Recital

Our parents brought music to our lives when we were young. We were taught how to play the piano and experienced joining recitals. The benefits of this learned skill carried on through adulthood. It's true what they say, as long as you know how to read musical notes, you can play any musical instrument you like. Not only did it become a hallmark of our childhood, it has also become an integral part of ourselves. Now that I am a parent, it's time to take responsibility to expose my 7 year old to music while he's young.

I say Luis' summer vacation has become productive because of the guitar lessons he's been having on weekends at the Yamaha School of Music . A Yamaha Summer Recital 2012 held at the Roofdeck of the Barrington Place capped the completion of his first module in classical guitar.

Luis is waiting to open the event as he leads the program invocation. (yes, he has brought his public speaking prowess outside the school.) :-D

The benefits of playing a musical instrument go beyond music. It's part of giving our kids a full quality education. After all, there is nothing more fun than watching them play their favorite instruments. Till the next recital...

Let your children enjoy and excel.
